Mani Ratnam, the ‘master of romance’, is back with his new film, Kaatru Veliyidai. The first poster of the film is out and like most of Mani Ratnam’s romances, looks beautiful. Almost resembling a painting, the poster is flush with soft hues of blue-green and white and at its centre is the film’s lead pair, Karthi and Aditi Rao Hydari, sharing a tender moment.

There are pigeons and a fighter jet flying in the midst of love and romance.

After Mani Ratnam’s highly successful OK Kanmani, this one also follows the genres of romance and family drama. It will see Karthi play an air force pilot with Aditi as his lady love. The film will also feature popular RJ Balaji in a small role as Karthi’s friend.

With music by AR Rahman, Kaatru Veliyidai is produced by Mani Ratnam’s home banner Madras Talkies. Sri Thenandal Films has acquired its Tamil Nadu theatrical rights. It will simultaneously be made in Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam.
